Keto Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

This Keto Cinnamon Rolls recipe was created by our fellow low-carb bloggers, Rami and Vicky Abrams, from Tasteaholics.com.

Two of our favorite desserts are cinnamon rolls and cupcakes, so combining the two into a low-carb winner was a no-brainer. When we first tasted the results, these decadent little treats blew our minds! So much flavor and sweetness is packed into each of these bakery bombs that it’s hard to believe they’re keto-approved.

Keto cinnamon rolls recipe relies on low-carb friendly ingredients

Cinnamon rolls are actually a wonderful low-carb dessert because they rely so heavily on the glaze for their sweetness, and cream cheese is one of keto’s best friends. When you’re not afraid of fat, the possibilities for flavorful explosions are virtually endless.

While cream cheese forms the base, the glaze’s sweetness comes primarily from SoNourished’s powdered erythritol. This is one of our favorite sweeteners: it’s the gentlest of the sugar alcohols and has zero net carbs, so it works with your low-carb diet rather than against it. It has no distracting aftertaste or confusing texture, making it nearly impossible to tell the difference between this glaze and one that’s prepared with a traditional infusion of processed sugar.

We go nuts for nuts when it comes to baking, and this recipe is no exception. The core of the dough comes from almond flour and almond milk, and this is intentional. While you could use other flour and milk replacements, these nuts have a subtle sweetness and distinct flavor that pairs incredibly well with cream cheese, creating an iconic combination that hasn’t been seen since Batman and Robin made their debut. Including butter and coconut oil adds decadent moisture that keeps your focus on the intense flavor rather than being distracted by what could otherwise be a dry, crumbly cupcake.

These cinnamon rolls are not only simple, but they’re also quick and easy. If you need a low-carb dessert in a hurry, this could quickly become your default “oh my gosh, the in-laws will be here in thirty minutes and I don’t want to destroy my diet so I need something sweet now” rescue recipe! #keto #lowcarb

  1. Three times you write that the correct amount of baking soda is 1/2 teaspoon, but the recipe says 1 teaspoon. Are you able to change that?

  2. how much baking soda

  3. How much baking soda?

  4. I don’t see the amount of baking soda listed in the ingredients. And I really, really want to make these :). One more thing, when you say “whisk together the butter, cream cheese, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth,” do you mean using the wire hand whisk and not an electric mixer? I’m not a baker so sometimes I get confused. Thank you.

    • Hi, Margaret. I apologize for the mistake.
      Please use 1/2 tsp of baking soda. And you can mix those ingredients with an electric mixer.
      All the best!

  5. Thank you, that is much better! :).

  6. Carbohydrates: 16.3g?? That is really high.
